Abstract:

These are the ways the world ends. Thirty-four new and selected doomsday scenarios. From the personal to the global, the hilarious to the political, the experimental to the scary-as-hell, each of the writers in this enthralling, provocative new collection has looked into the future and found it missing. Canonical literary figures, contemporary masters, and a few rising stars have joined together across boundaries of place and time to celebrate the inexhaustible vitality and variety of the short story by writing their own endings to the story of the world. Obliteration never hurt so good.--Back cover.
